It wasn't strictly because of you.  There are some long
time issues that have been around for a while, and I
wanted to provide some guidelines that I wanted us
to put together so that we don't keep revisiting the
same things over and over.

You aren't the first one to meet with resistance on
the first guideline, and won't be the last.  I am
putting some words behind the "High Esteem" principles,
and trying to make things run a bit smoother.  One
shouldn't need an asbestous (sp?) suite to develop on

There are a million ways of doing things, and we sometimes
need to limit our options.  No hard feelings, mate.

No need to appologize.  We all hurry at times.  We are walking
the balance between mercelessly refactoring things and providing
stability.  Just a brief note about what/how you are doing things
is enough to put our minds at ease.
